‘Not Good Enough’ ‘The Last Player We Need’ Fans Debate Reports Of Celtic’s Interest In 29 Year Old Championship Striker

Celtic are said to be weighing up a loan offer for Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes in the January transfer window.

The Hoops are looking to sign a backup for Odsonne Edouard and the 29-year-old’s name is reportedly under consideration. Supporters on Twitter don’t think a move for the former Scotland international is a good idea:

A lot will probably depend on how much a loan deal would cost and whether Rhodes would be a suitable replacement. He has a very different style of play to Edouard and is unlikely to be suited to a lone striker role.

In any case, he may not be leaving his current club next month, going by the comments of Owls boss Garry Monk. Rhodes has started Wednesday’s last three games and his manager is happy with the striker’s contributions:

“I’ve been delighted for Jordan. He’s worked very hard, as I said after the Forest game, behind the scenes. He had a really positive week. It’s a player that, now, if we can get him to contribute and keep contributing to the level that he’s been showing, it’s a great asset to have, isn’t it?”

“It doesn’t alter anything that goes into January. We should be sitting this week, or the start of next week, with everyone involved in that process for January.”

Things could change if Wednesday do sign another striker in January and Rhodes could still be on the move. Whether he’ll end up at Celtic Park, we shall have to wait and see.
